Product description

Designed for interviewers at all levels of experience, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5(R) Diagnostic Exam is the clinician's companion for using DSM-5(R) in diagnostic interviews. Both experienced clinicians and those still in training will benefit from the thoughtful, yet practical, fashion in which DSM-5(R) revisions are reviewed and incorporated into the 30-minute diagnostic interview. This guide is written for all levels of experience, since every clinician needs to master both DSM-5(R) criteria and how to conduct a fruitful diagnostic interview. The book: * Provides insight into the process of establishing a therapeutic alliance, which remains the goal of any psychiatric encounter, even one as brief as the diagnostic interview.* Offers an extensive set of appendixes with resources to enhance understanding. These include a brief, easy-to-use summary of DSM-5(R) disorders; a stepwise approach to differential diagnosis; the Mental Status Examination and a psychiatric glossary; the ABPN Clinical Skills Evaluation; DSM-5(R)-related diagnostic tools and scales; and coverage of alternative diagnostic systems and rating scales.* Provides a sequential framework for generating a differential diagnosis, using a six-step approach, that will help clinicians develop their clinical decision-making skills and ensure that they take into account the many and interrelated causes of mental disorders. Direct, practical, and informative, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5(R) Diagnostic Exam will enable readers to efficiently and effectively employ DSM-5(R) as part of a comprehensive diagnostic interview.

Designed for interviewers at all levels of experience, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5(R) Diagnostic Exam is the clinician's companion for using DSM-5(R) in diagnostic interviews. Beginning with an introduction to the diagnostic interview, the Pocket Guide addresses the goals of the interview, provides an efficient structure for learning how to conduct one, reviews the screening questions, and then explains the ways in which DSM-5(R), with its updated approaches to diagnosis and classification, impacts the interview going forward. Significant revisions from DSM-IV-TR(R) to DSM-5(R) are reviewed. The final chapter, the core of the guide, walks the reader through a complete diagnostic exam that includes the follow-up questions for each of the DSM-5(R) disorder classes.The book is useful for beginners learning the format and flow of the diagnostic interview and for seasoned clinicians conducting an interview consistent with the significant revisions reflected in DSM-5(R). Not intended to replace DSM-5(R) itself or psychiatric interview texts, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5(R) Diagnostic Exam is a pragmatic and concise resource for diagnosing a person in mental distress while establishing a therapeutic relationship.
